From Down Below

In the night, stars dance above like fireflies
Swirling, creating shapes before my eyes
In my dream, I join them in the skies
Soaring amongst heavens, I seek my prize
Dreams, I shall not, from the ground realize

Nightlights

Stars scattered across
The longest night, like magic
Midst winter solstice

Fireflies Haiku

Fireflies in the night
Playful magic flight with stars
Shimmer in summer
